Kudos to Camas/Washougal Fire Division Chief, Cliff Free, who came to Dorothy Fox and trained our teachers on CPR and AED procedures.

Thank you to our nurse, Karen Wight, who lead our teachers in an exciting game of Safety Jeopardy during our August In-service.  This activity helped teachers to receive up-to-date training in signs of allergic reaction, epipen use, choking, and other emergency response issues to make sure that we are ready to support our students with the safest school community possible.
